Fairy godmothers are not all alike, as Allie Adams is about to find out. When the man of her dreams walks into her life, she’ll need more than the right pair of shoes to win his heart. With the help of a most unusual fairy godmother, Allie just might get everything she wants. Cherrie Mack puts a new twist on an old favorite in Book 1 of the Little Black Box series, Inconceivable.
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review!
What I say:I'm not particularly a shoe person but I love the cover!Inconceivable is a modern day retelling of Cinderella, but instead of Princes and balls we're given pampered society princesses and fortune hunters.
The book was a bit of a mixed bag for me because some parts I really enjoyed whilst others left me feeling kinda flummoxed. I liked the modernisation of the popular fairy tale, but it took me a while to warm to the characters and Allie never 100% won me over. Whilst I appreciated Allie's struggle, I found her slightly irritating for a large chunk of the plot - BUT I do understand that it's part of her journey to seem almost unlikeable (at times) before she realises her own faults. She's not all bad and I really loved how caring she was with the people she helped - Plus I completely understand why she feels like she does for her step-family.
I liked Angelo - he's funny, charming and kinda complicated. I did figure out his secret fairly early on and it did remind me of the Reese Witherspoon movie (sorry the name is too spoilery) but I still enjoyed it and him.
I wasn't entirely sure what to make of Adrienne, who actually seemed to get nicer as the story progressed. I think my overall confusion was because Allie was so different from what I expected that I didn't know how to feel about the other characters. But in a strange sort of way, the reason I liked the book was because it was so unexpected. The story isn't overshadowed with lots of naughty scenes. I did like the ending and the more lighthearted moments were really sweet. As a big fan of fate in books, I liked the destiny element.
